Happy Snowmen

I've got another busy week ahead so I tried to squeeze in a few challenges today. For this card I played along with The Paper Players, Dynamic Duos and Jingle Belles.

The Paper Players have a theme challenge going on, and its snowmen. I love snowmen and I am hoping that making snowmen cards right now will help Mother Nature actually bring snow to my area! It's southcentral Alaska....and we're under a red flag(fire) warning! We've had more grass fires the last 4 days then we had all summer, its pretty scary. So here you go Mother Nature, how can you resist these happy snowmen? I know I sure cant!

The colors come from the Dynamic Duos, which is to use Certainly Celery and Real Red. In the image I used a very small touch of orange for the noses but other than that the images uses only CC and RR, with a touch of neutral(Crumb Cake). I also added some Dazzling Details to help the scene stand out a little more.

Last but not least....over at the Jingle Belles blog the challenges are done until Jan.1st but they still wan us to link up any Christmas cards or winter cards in the meantime!

(if the sketch looks familiar it was recently a challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches and I just love it, very versatile!)

Stamps: Frosty Friends, More Merry Messages
Paper: Certainly Celery, Real Red, Whisper White, Wintergreen DSP (retired)
Ink: Black StazOn, Certainly Celery, Real Red, Crumb Cake, Only Orange (retired)
